As expected: it's more or less occurred in northern and western Brooklyn, but not so much in eastern and southern Brooklyn.

^ Indeed. I've been to a few new apartments/condos in Williamsburg and it's expensive. A good 40-50% percent of the folks who tend to live in these buildings do so for about a year then look elsewhere, from my experience.

Cypress Hills is currently the cheapest in Brooklyn. It contains some interesting row-homes, larger residential buildings and houses. It has Highland park, the Ridgewood reservoir and the historic graveyards, Forest Park not too far and the J/Z passes through the center of the neighborhood. But CH being part of the ENY zone it has a 'scary' reputation for many. I've been seeing many boarded up structures in this area lately, wonder what's going on, wasn't like that a year ago.

Makes sense: there's a north/south and west/east divide in Brooklyn. North and west = closer to Manhattan, better transit access, housing stock more appealing to gentrifiers. The east and south don't have as good transit coverage; the east has the worst neighborhoods like East New York and Brownsville and the southern part is more quiet, semi-suburban and kind of the antithesis of "hip."

The more central parts of Brooklyn are getting gentrified, too. The Western half of Crown Heights, Prospect-Lefferts Garden, Prospect Park South, Ditmas Park and probably others.

Explain to me the ridiculous part of it. I didn't say anything about the pace at which this is happening, but it's definitely happening.
